Automated (and low cost!) Interview Prep: $ 100.00 Buy now!
You will call into a U.S. phone number or a Skype account, and our special-built automated system will ask you a series of interview questions specific to your school. Ten schools supported! Your responses will be recorded. EssaySnark will then review the recording and critique you via a written report on how you did.
What you get:
* A Q&A session with questions specific to the school you're interviewing at (most schools supported)
* A recording of the session so you can hear how you come across (may be MP3 or WAV format)
* A written critique of your performance - both content and delivery
Notes: These sessions are computerized. This is not a live telephone call. EssaySnark will critique your performance using a recording of your session. This is a mock blind interview practice, which is appropriate for the majority of bschool admissions processes. However, this may not be the best preparation for an interview at a school like Harvard or MIT (among others). Ten different schools explicitly supported with tailored questions. If you are interviewing elsewhere, you will get asked standard interview questions that top business schools have been known to focus on. Your practice interview will not be customized to your profile personally. In case of connection problems, we will help troubleshoot but are not responsible for technical issues experienced during the call.
This service will be available to you for 30 days and must be used within that time.
This automated interview prep is specifically built for these schools:
- Chicago Booth
- Cornell Johnson
- Dartmouth Tuck
- Duke Fuqua
- Michigan Ross
- UC-Berkeley Haas
- UCLA Anderson
Even if your school is not on this list, you could still benefit from this practice session! For example, a Darden interview is a unique experience based on how open-ended it is, however if you’re not comfortable answering the standard questions we’ll run you through here, then you’ll likely have trouble with the Darden format. If you’re unsure whether your school would be a good match for this service, send us a message (gethelpnow at essaysnark dot com or tweet to us) and we’ll let you know.
TERMS: PRACTICE INTERVIEWYou must provide your resume in advance of the call. You hereby acknowledge that your call will be recorded and you explicitly grant permission for that. Your resume and the audio recording will be made available only to authorized EssaySnark representatives.
Your written interview critique will be available within 2 business days after completion of the call. We try to deliver them faster than that but cannot guarantee quicker turnaround, though you're welcome to have it expedited at an additional fee (please contact us for details).
You will be given a U.S. phone number to dial into for your session. Calling from a landline is recommended. You will need to be in a quiet location with no background noise or the automated system may not operate correctly. Some services like Skype may not work with this service. We are not liable for connectivity problems or issues completing the practice interview based on disconnects or a poor connection. If you encounter technical difficulties we will try to accommodate another appointment for you at our discretion. You are responsible for any long-distance or other telecom charges you may incur.

Client Reviews on EssaySnark’s Automated Interview Prep
Took this service 2 days before my interview. The best time to take it would be about 5 days before the actual thing.
The first reason for that is that you get to do a proper mock (albeit with a computer - a bit unnatural, but if you do okay with a computer, you’ll definitely do better with a human being when it matters) and practice your delivery in a time-bound setting. A lot of the questions are general, but there are some particular to the school and they reflect what the school cares about most.
The second and most important reason is that you get a ton of high-quality feedback from ES and also the raw copy of the notes that ES would have taken while simultaneously listening to your responses. This is priceless! For me, this gave a very real sense of how my interviewer might react to my responses at an instinctual level.
Honestly, I could have majorly botched my interview had I not kept in mind the feedback I got as part of this service. Would totally recommend to anyone going in for a ‘blind interview’!
I used the service after receiving my interview invitation.
The disadvantage honestly is the automated system which only asks questions according to transcripts. You tend to get nervous in the phone interview and it's kinda unnatural.
However the reason I gave 4 stars is that the review afterwards and the practice itself are superuseful! You NEED to do this before interview. The practice revealed my weakest link in a interview and Essaysnark didn't miss a single one of them in the review which was extremely detailed, fair, straightforward and honest. I find it very helpful to have some focus during preparation.
Helpful Reality Check
Overall this interview prep was extremely helpful. It provided a reality check on how prepared I was for my interviews. The feedback I received was a comprehensive write up that helped me evaluate exactly what I needed to work on before the real interview. As a result I believe my actual interviews went better than the practice.
Initially I planned to use the service to prepare for one top-15 school, but was able to leverage the great feedback to help prepare for another top-15 school interview the next week. From those two interviews I have one acceptance and am waiting for a decision on the other.
The only small downside is that it does take a couple questions to become comfortable with the automated system prompts. The system can move quickly so you need to be prepared.
I would highly recommend this service to anyone preparing for an interview.
